Rectifier Efficiency

  • DC output data

  • AC input data

    • Method:

Input current & voltage method

Formula used:

NOTE: According to Peabody, this method will not be strictly accurate, but will give a reasonable approximation.

Watthourmeter method

Formula used:


r = secs/revolution
k = meter constant

The same method should always be used for subsequent efficiency measurements in order to detect any deterioration of rectifier efficiency.
